How the coronavirus pandemic has tested UK doctors’ leadership skills.
We know that hospitals perform better, on average, when they are led by doctors. But being a great clinician is not sufficient. Doctors also need leadership development, which until recently has been unavailable.
At Cass Business School we run a leadership and management masters degree designed for medical doctors. The degree grew out of my research into clinical leadership in hospitals — the coronavirus crisis offers the chance to find out how our frontline students are using their skills.
